The Value of List-Making: Three Traits To Make Yours Stand Out From The Rest

The Value of List-Making: Three Traits To Make Yours Stand Out From The Rest | Blogging | Scoop.it

Robin Good's curator insight, September 28, 2013 4:10 AM


Beth Kanter, one of the key go-to-person for communication strategy when it comes to NGOs, provides a useful reminder of the value of creating lists for content marketing objectives alongside some good links to list-making examples and list-building tools. 



My comment: One thing that differentiates good "lists" from bad ones, is not often visibile by looking just at the surface.


Good lists in my view are characterized by these three traits: 


1) Short - long lists are tiring and not very useful


2) Categorized - "groups" help scanning and finding what you're looking for


3) Commented - excerpts from about pages as list item descriptions are not very useful, as what makes a real difference in a list is your insight, opinion or evaluation into why that item is in that list. 


Without these elements in fact, just about anyone can take a search tool and assemble the "Best of" whatever software category in a ridicule amount of time, while not really providing anything useful or reliable. 


That's the difference between a list and a curated list.


The list "as is" makes you work more to check and verify everything that's in the list, while the curated one saves you time in finding or reminding you rapidly what is exactly that you need.



Useful. Resourceful. 7/10

Brian Yanish - MarketingHits.com's curator insight, September 24, 2013 8:21 PM

I agree  if a startup doesn't use content to talk to their future unknown customers they loss the opportunity to connect on multiple touch points including social media. 


Content also gives the potential buyers a spot to ask questions (comment) which in turn can help a startup improve their products and their message.

Samuel Pavin's curator insight, September 25, 2013 1:47 AM

As the various comments say, content and social networks are now key for startups.

That is also one of the greatest opportunities for startups to get noticed and expand worldwide even with little resources.

Five Social Media Rules You Have to Know

Five Social Media Rules You Have to Know | Blogging | Scoop.it

Here are five key points to increasing your influence in support of your strategies.


 1. Produce quality content

If you want to make your mark on social media, you should provide quality content. Generate your own, become a thought leader, and share other people’s content that you believe is interesting.

 

 2. Be open and engaging

On social media, it’s important to be available to your audience, and few people exemplify that principle better than US entrepreneur Gary Vaynerchuk. For example, on Twitter he does a lot of responding to followers. He treats everybody as an equal, and responds at an amazing velocity.

 

3. Focus on a specific niche

On social media, you can either be a generalist – producing and curating a hodge-podge of content across many different disciplines – or you can choose to specialise in one or a few areas. Specialists tend to bend more ears than generalists.


Social media is extremely noisy. You’ve got to be able to stand out, and the best way to do this is to own a particular subject.

 

4. Use social media to build your business, and vice versa

For an entrepreneur, time spent on social media might seem like a distraction from the more important tasks central to running a business. Because it’s so time-intensive, back up your thought leadership on social media with a profit-making enterprise.

 

5. Embrace each social network’s unique culture

Each social network has a unique culture, and the best users embrace it rather than sharing identical content across platforms. Take Cory Booker, the mayor of Newark, New Jersey. He relies mainly on Twitter, where he has more than 1,2 million followers – and Facebook, and uses each platform in a way that takes advantage of its native capabilities.
